4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Sequel
Although lacking Kevin Bacon, this sequel does it again with the enjoyable repartee between the characters - especially Earl (Fred Ward) and Burt (Michael Gross). There are many funny scenes and there is an air of originality about it (for a sequel!). It doesn't want to rest on its predecessor's laurels and different ideas keep springing up to good effect. The CGI work...

3.0 out of 5 stars fun!
This film is fun, it's silly, it's stupid, but it's still worth watching!

Going by the rule of diminishing sequels, this film is nowhere near as good as Tremors, it couldn't be - that film was near enough perfect! But this is a different beast and has a different tone to Tremors, more lighter and family friendly.

What makes this film so watchable is...

4.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Sequel, 18 Jan 2001
By A Customer
Although lacking Kevin Bacon, this sequel does it again with the enjoyable repartee between the characters - especially Earl (Fred Ward) and Burt (Michael Gross). There are many funny scenes and there is an air of originality about it (for a sequel!). It doesn't want to rest on its predecessor's laurels and different ideas keep springing up to good effect. The CGI work (up to a par with Starship Troopers) is not overdone and the director obvioiusly knows when model work is best. Funny and with scenes to make you jump - a worthy sequel to Tremors :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Crash, bang, dollop!, 21 Mar 2000
Fred Ward is back fighting Graboids again. No Kevin Bacon but the new sidekick - Christopher Gartin fills the gap as the partner who does not have a clue. He's also a fan of Earl Bassett(Ward) after reading about his original exploits in magazines. Michael Gross steals the show as gun-slinging Burt Gummer, whose marriage to Heather fell apart after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Arriving in Mexico in response to Earl's call for help Burt systematically blows up every Graboid he comes across until the monsters start evolving and getting smarter. As well as making it much harder to deal with the new-style Graboids it lends the film an edge as the heroes adapt to the new monster. As for the finale, to quote Burt - "It's not far enough. It's gonna be BIG!"

3.0 out of 5 stars fun!, 16 Oct 2006
This film is fun, it's silly, it's stupid, but it's still worth watching!

Going by the rule of diminishing sequels, this film is nowhere near as good as Tremors, it couldn't be - that film was near enough perfect! But this is a different beast and has a different tone to Tremors, more lighter and family friendly.

What makes this film so watchable is Fred Ward returning to his Tremors character and what good luck we get there. Fred is great in this movie and gives a very funny turn, really holding the movie together. Where some of the other cast members just seem annoying, Fred hold it together.

The plot is simple with Fred called in to kill Graboids at an oil field and it all looks low budget, but in a film this silly you don't care. The new creatures are also interesting and add a new dimension, but sadly take away from the creatures that you came to watch.

Not as good as the original, but it's own beast.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a patch on the original, 6 April 2014

An enjoyable film and Fred Ward is as good as in the original but the evolution of the "worms" is disappointing. The comedy is still good but what made Tremors so good was the suspense and the scary bits were extremely good. Still overall a good film to pass an hour or so with.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good sequel but ..., 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An enjoyable film for fans of the first Tremors film. A variation on the Tremors plot with a good cast but without Kevin Bacon. If you really enjoyed the first film then chances are you will enjoy this one too but watch the original film first.

2.0 out of 5 stars Did I watch a different film to everyone else?, 9 April 2011

I just don't know how other reviewers can score this so highly! I LOVE the original Tremors; the witty repartee between Earl and Valentine, a feisty female lead in Rhonda, brilliant comic support from Burt and Heather, not to mention Melvin and Walter getting their fair share of laughs too. This sequel is so poor compared to the original. The script is weak and barely funny, and the twist on the Graboids is pretty lame. The original relied on a low budget meaning the director had to cleverly create tension, letting it build slowly, before the big "reveal". Here the director goes a little bit CGI crazy and rather than being hammy, it looks cheap and nasty. Plus the script goes for high octane action almost from the start, which in my view is just an attempt to compensate for the poor script.

In Tremors there are a handful of creatures, and it makes sense that they've never been discovered. What doesn't add up is that in Tremors 2 there are dozens of the blighters roaming around. How did such a prolific giant worm manage to stay so hidden if as they expect us to believe, they multiple at a ridiculously fast rate? Yes, I know this is not a scientifically accurate film (no, really), but a bit of consistency would be nice.

There ARE a few positives. Some nice salutes to the original, and Burt is back. Burt is the highlight for me here - he's a hilarious cliche of a character in the first film, and lovingly recreated in this film. Earl, unfortunately hasn't got a decent foil in the form of Grady. It's no Earl/Valentine bromance, and although I think that Fred Ward's character should be robust enough to carry a film, I don't think he was given the material to really lift this film.

I notice that the other two sequels (two more!!) also score quite highly with reviewers, however I could barely bring myself to watch this one, and if Tremors (the original) is going to stay high in my affections, I think I should steer well clear of Nos 3 and 4 before it gets ruined forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Maybe this is your big second chance.", 3 April 2011
Following his claim to fame with the Graboid event, Earl Bass (Fred Ward) is living a far from glamorous lifestyle, having made some poor judgement on his finance. Young Grady Hooper (Christopher Gartin), a huge fan of Earl's, brings a man with a subterranean reptilian problem to him. Reluctantly, Earl agrees to go Graboid hunting. With it being such a big task, Earl calls in some back up, his old friend Burt Gummer (Michael Gross). They soon learn that Graboids are only the beginning of their trouble, when the Graboids change into an altogether new creature; heat-seeking Hermaphrodites, which they name Shriekers.

While a lot of film sequels are a disappointment, this movie follows on nicely from the original. Like the original, Aftershocks contains humor, a good score, and nice scenery.
